The Steamrunner by Euderion The Steamrunner by Euderion
The Federation Steamrunner class is a 356 meters long heavy frigate and Blockade Runner Escort with a crew of 200.
Authorized by the Perimeter Defense Directive in the 2360s, the Steamrunner-class vessels were designed for replacing the older Miranda class starships, patrolling the Federation borders, responding to border incursions, and for intelligence gathering. In mid 2360s, the Steamrunner, together with the Akira, Defiant, Sabre and Norway classes, was selected for realignment during the construction phase to integrate several technical new developments against the Borg. Those new Defensive- and Offensive Systems gave her the role af an Escort vessel which saw heavy duty during the Dominion War and against the Borg in 2373.
The Steamrunner-class is one of the more unusual designs fielded by Starfleet. The ship does not follow the usual separate saucer and engineering hulls with both sections combined into a single frame.
Like the Akira-class the Steamrunner is built with a through-deck shuttlebay allowing it to accommodate a large number of auxiliary craft and a handful attack fighters.

The Steamrunner was originally named as the "Streamrunner" class, but the first "R" going lost during multiple reconcept and approval stages.
